Shadow home secretary accuses Rishi Sunak of 'shabby political deals' over Suella Braverman and Sir Gavin Williamson appointments

Labour’s shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper suggested Rishi Sunak had done “grubby political deals” in the cases of both Suella Braverman and Sir Gavin Williamson. The Prime Minister reappointed Ms Braverman as Home Secretary just six days after she was forced to quit over a security breach. He also handed Sir Gavin a Government job despite being warned he was under investigation for allegedly bullying former Tory chief whip Wendy Morton. Ms Cooper told BBC Breakfast: “In both cases, this really looks like Rishi Sunak has just done grubby political deals that aren’t in the national interest. “It really looks like we have got more of the same. That is not good enough.”
